Additional information

I accepted Christ as my savior at my church's AWANA program when I was in middle school. I was immediately taken under the wing of the AWANA director and started serving as a leader in High School. I was, by far the youngest leader at the time. My early years as a believer taught me all about serving God through the local church. A strong emphasis was placed on doing things like working in AWANA, going to church on Sunday, and reading the Bible. I am appreciative of those things being ingrained in me early but From the ages of 14-28 my christian life consisted of checking boxes to make sure I was "good enough" for God. The importance of having a strong relationship with God and a deep understanding of what Christ's sacrifice meant to my daily life was not stressed. My understanding of God and His expectations for me were shallow at best. In 2008, with the guidance of then Pastor Phil Bowen, I had an awakening. Phil challenged my weak understanding of God and I began to come alive. I realized that God wanted my heart more than my list of accomplishments. Since that time, God has asked me to step out of my comfort zone and take on some awesome responsibilities. I made a commitment to always say yes to God's call. I am human so I am sure that I will fail but so far I have answered his call each time. He has transformed me from a quiet "behind the scenes" guy into a bold leader for His kingdom. I have truly enjoyed the wild ride that God has taken me on and am excited to see what is next.

My beautiful wife, Stephanie, and I have been married for 13 years. We have two amazing kids, Josiah (11) and Sydney (8). My wife and I have been best friends since high school and have served as a ministry team since we were married in 2002. Stephanie is a hairdresser at a salon owned and operated by her parents and I started my own company (JSB Toner Services) in 2009.
